INTERIOR DESIGN

Interior design - a discipline that looks after designing all of

the interiors of a space. This can include things like flooring,


windows, doors, walls, lighting, furniture, and miscellaneous design pieces. The goal of interior design is generally to make a space that is both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.

When doing interior design it is necessary to think of the


house as a totality; a series of spaces linked together by halls and stairways. It is therefore appropriate that a common style and theme runs throughout.

BASIC INTERIOR DESIGN PRINCIPLES

1. BALANCE : There are three styles of balance: symmetrical, asymmetrical, and radial.

1.1 Symmetrical - usually found in traditional interiors. Symmetrical balance is characterized by the same objects repeated in the same positions on either side of a vertical axis.

1.2 Asymmetrical balance - more appropriate in design in these days. Balance is achieved with some dissimilar objects that have equal visual weight or eye attraction. Asymmetry suggests movement, and leads to more lively interiors.

Objects balance well because they are judged by their visual weight, not pairings

ASYMMETRICALY BALANCED LIVING ROOM

1.3 Radial symmetry is when all the elements of a design are arrayed around a center point. A spiral staircase is also an excellent example of radial balance. Though not often employed in interiors, it can provide an interesting counterpoint if used appropriately.

2. EMPHASIS - it is the area to which your eye is attracted and should be interesting enough to encourage the viewer to look further.

If you dont have a natural focal point in your space, such as a fireplace or a large window with a beautiful view for example, you can create one by highlighting a particular piece of furniture, a large artwork, an unusual sculpture, your favorite collection of things, a colorful rug or by simply painting a contrasting color in one area.

3. RHYTHM- In interiors, rhythm is created by placing a unifier in the room, such as a color, pattern or texture. A sense of movement is created when the unifier is repeated throughout the space.

Rhythm keeps the room cohesive and allows the eye to move easily about the room to experience all parts of the design.

4. COLOR- Colors work together in many ways. The countless combinations influence our thoughts, opinions and feelings.

The color in our home offers a glimpse into our personality.

5. TEXTURE- is a strong determining factor in a

users emotional response to a design.

6. LINES - Lines help create a mood in an interior space and


can provide the same benefit online. The best thing about lines is that they can be as understated or as powerful as youd like.

Horizontal lines often give a casual vibe, while vertical lines express formality. Curvy lines can add

grace or whimsy, while diagonal lines provide


rhythm and movement.
